This is according to Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa at a briefing in Cape Town on Monday. The security measures – which have been hugely effective in reducing rhino poaching at the Kruger National Park – have pushed poachers into other provinces particularly in KwaZulu-Natal. “Given its size and the large number of rhino living in the park in particular, much of our efforts remain directed there. I am pleased to announce that there has been a decrease in poaching incidents in the park.
Head of operations for the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board Mike Anderson-Reade said in a statement that numerous shoals of sardines had been spotted in the area between St Michaels on Sea and Ramsgate. After almost a month after their first sighting, the sardines have made another appearance, this time on the lower South Coast. “Netting by commercial seine netters has taken place at Ski-Boat Bay (Ramsgate), Ramsgate Main Beach, Margate and St Michaels on Sea.
“The good news is that the weather improved during the morning and flights have begun to land and depart from the airport,” said Leigh Gunkel-Keuler, spokesperson for the airport, in a statement on Monday. Poor visibility as a result of early morning fog around OR Tambo International Airport caused 24 flights to be diverted to other local, coastal and regional airports.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
